St. John's 2019 Commencement Exercises

This is an exciting time for you and your family. Your hard work and dedication will culminate in your Commencement. Commencement is historic - not only in your life - but the life of our University.  We invite you to join in continuing the history and the great tradition of St. John's. Your participation will greatly enrich the excitement of the celebration.


Our Commencement Ceremonies include the conferral of degrees and certificates of all our graduates, the recognition of each graduate by name, a commencement address and the awarding of honorary degrees to distinguished individuals.

All eligible and prospective graduates will be contacted in early March via their St. John's e-mail account with more details. Graduates will need to register and order their academic attire online beginning on Monday, March 4, 2019.
